ECHA provides advice on new hazard classes for substances and mixtures

ECHA has published information on the application dates and related guidance on the three new hazard classes for classifying, labelling and packaging (CLP) substances and mixtures that entered into force on 20 April 2023.

Companies and Member State authorities can use current guidance on identifying endocrine disruptors and on PBT (persistence, bioaccumulation, toxicity) assessment until the guidance on applying the CLP criteria has been updated. It is expected to be ready in 2024.

After the transition periods, it will be mandatory for companies to indicate if the substance is classified in any of the new hazard classes.

More information is available on ECHA’s news.
